At Long Last, the day is here

 Two years ago this month, I was accepted by BMS World Mission to work with them at L’Hôpital de Guinebor II, in Chad. Tomorrow, Monday 21st May 2012, I start!!!

Some of the friends I've
made along the way
Following two years of pre- overseas service training in Birmingham, a Diploma in Tropical Nursing in Liverpool, an intensive summer French course in Paris and then 8 months of French lessons, as well as lessons in life in the culture and climate of Chad, the day has FINALLY come- I am joining the team at the hospital! While the last 2 years have been ones of preparation, unpacking and repacking, frustrations, excitement and dreaming of what it might be like, tomorrow marks the end of the waiting and the beginning of a new, much anticipated adventure.

Thank you to all of you for your support and encouragement over the past two years and I look forward to sharing with you all that lies ahead… whatever that may be….!
